  1. Fast Thermal Calculations for Responsive Targets in Support of Real-Time Scene Generation


    In order to provide the required simulation frame rates we propose to decouple the incident flux calculations from a simple thermal response model. We propose to develop a table-lookup methodology based on high fidelity precomputed environmental and eventually aerothermal fluxes which can be draw in real time to drive the thermal response model. A simple 1-D thermal calculation based on an analyt ...

  2. Modeling of Lithium-Ion Cell Performance


    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with academic partners, Georgia Tech"s Center for Innovative Battery and Fuel Cell Technologies, Penn State University, and industrial partner Eagle Picher propose to create a physics-based modeling for predicting the life performance of Low and Middle Earth Orbit (LEO/MEO) Lithium-ion cells. The relationships between solid-electrolyte interpha ...

  3. PMHT Track Fusion for ABIR

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA10001

    Fusing data together for target tracking is a complex problem. There are two elements: First, the raw observations must be associated with existing tracks or used to form new tracks. Once the association has been done, then the tracks can be updated and filtered with the new data. When associating data (either measurements or tracks or both) with existing tracks, the separation between the trac ...

  4. End-to-End BMDS Strategic Communication Systems

    SBC: WELKIN SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: MDA10003

    To meet the goals of SBIR topic MDA10-003, Welkin Sciences proposes to upgrade three important tools needed by DoD's strategic communications community: 1) the CommLink computer simulation used to analyze and evaluate scintillation hardening techniques by DoD scientists and contractors early in a transceiver's development cycle; 2) the CommLink Defined Transceiver (CDT) used by DoD contr ...

  5. GPS and Command Link Assured Operation

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: MDA10004

    Echo Ridge proposes to develop a comprehensive realtime emulator capable of synthesizing a wide variety of waveforms such as GPS, interferers, and other GNSS signal classes. The system would create an arbitrary number of coherent wavefront RF output channels, synthesize atmospheric and terrain induced perturbations, and emulate propagation affecting phenomena resulting from plasma effects and EMP ...

  6. Wavefront Simulator for 21st Century

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: MDA10004

    With the rapid strides in various avionics-related technologies, the need for advanced simulators will increase. Anti-jam receiver development and future improvements in PNT are critically dependent on the availability of advanced simulators. The needs include: flexible, accurate, adaptable, programmable, user-friendly, hardware in the loop operation, precise wavefront simulation, high dynamics, e ...

  7. High-Bandwidth, Extended Linearity, Reaction-Cancelled, High-Surface-Figure-Accuracy Fast-Steering Mirror for Future MDA Missions

    SBC: Left Hand Design Corporation            Topic: MDA10005

    Jitter suppression and image stabilization require an increasing number of technological improvements as vehicles become unmanned, more agile and work in more hostile environments. Fast steering mirrors (FSM) play an important supporting role in providing a quiet operating platform. LHDC has contributed a number of FSM for space platforms and plans to enhance performance of future products in fo ...

  8. Direct-to-Metal Bonding for Improved Thermal Performance of Lasers

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: MDA10006

    The most promising and scalable high-power laser geometries effectively manage thermal transfer from the laser crystal to the heat sink. While next generation crystals and pump geometries aim to eliminate waste heat in the first place, it will always be the case that efficient removal of heat will be paramount for further power scaling. When powers reach the kilowatt level, in an area about the ...

  9. High Speed Representation of Complex Scenes

    SBC: JRM ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: MDA10025

    JRM and DVC propose to develop an innovative approach for on-the-fly (OTF) 3D scene synthesis and physics-based sensor rendering of complex battlespace environments directly from GIS source data at HWIL frame rates (100-400Hz). This approach will carefully address all the requirements for MDA, including: underlying spectral synthesis, proper phenomenology for solar reflections, glint and thermal ...

  10. Visible and Infrared Scenes for Tactical Environments

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: MDA10025

    Higher resolution optical sensors are driving requirements for highly detailed representations of natural background surfaces and man-made objects for real-time scene generators used in development of Ballistic Missile Defense Systems (BMDS). New methods are critically needed to represent such structures that are computationally efficient enough for scene generators to support the high frame rates ...
